Super Mario Maker (スーパーマリオメーカー, Super Mario Maker) is a downloadable stage that appears in both versions of Super Smash Bros. 4. It was officially revealed on September 14th, 2015, and was released on September 30th, 2015.[1]

Stage layout[edit]

The stage is based on the game of the same name. At the start of a match, a randomly chosen cursor from Super Mario Maker customizes the stage's layout. Fighters start on pink temporary platforms that vanish when jumped off of, rolled on, or walked off of. During the match, the cursor will repair any blocks that break on the stage.

This stage is customized by the cursor in four different game styles: Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, or New Super Mario Bros. U. Occasionally, the styles will switch at random mid-match. In Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, the standard version of the stage alternates between two of the four themes, but in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, it scrolls through all four. The Omega form for both versions of the game cycles through all four themes as well.

The randomly-generated stage may be a floating island or a walk-off stage with bottomless pits, and may feature slopes. Elements that can appear on the stage include:

  • Stationary floating soft platforms (sometimes tilted)
  • Platforms that move along rails
  • Mushroom platforms
  • Bridges protruding from walls
  • Donut Blocks that fall when stood on
  • Breakable Brick Blocks (in the Super Mario World style they become Rotating Rlocks, which spin when hit and become intangible until stopped by the cursor)
  • Unbreakable blocks
  • ? Blocks that yield items when hit (often items from Mario games; the cursor will refill these blocks periodically)
  • Warp Pipes
  • Slippery Ice Blocks
  • Conveyor belts
  • Lava pools

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, various Mario objects and enemies sometimes fly by in the background, including Bullet Bills; a Hammer Bro, a Koopa Troopa, a Lakitu flying by in clouds, and a Goomba riding a Koopa Clown Car.

Ω Form[edit]

The Ω form of the stage features a single platform whose bottom extends downward slightly using inverse slopes. Thus the layout of the stage will always be the same, but the four themes will still change randomly, making this one of two Ω form stages that can appear differently.

Tournament Legality[edit]

Super Mario Maker's unpredictable stage layout has lead it to be universally banned from tournaments, as it can range from being fairly neutral to being cramped, featuring caves of life, camping spots, or stage hazards such as lava, disrupting the fight. Also, the hand that repairs the blocks can come in at the wrong time and stop recoveries.


The layout of Super Mario Maker.
In the game Super Mario Maker, players can create their own 2D Mario levels to play and share using the four themes found on this stage. While editing a level by using the Gamepad's touchscreen, a cursor appears on the TV screen as either a hand holding a stylus, a cat's arm, Mario's arm, or the hand cursor from Mario Paint. If a player tests their level with Mario placed above a bottomless pit, he will spawn on a small pink platform.

Most of the playable characters of Super Smash Bros. 4 (the exceptions being Mii Fighters, Roy, Ryu, Corrin, Bayonetta and Cloud) are available in Super Mario Maker as costumes for Costume Mario, unlocked via amiibo or by playing through the 100 Mario challenge, which tasks the player to beat a certain number of levels starting out with 100 lives.

A 3DS port of the game, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS was announced a year after Super Mario Maker's initial release. It contains most of the features of the original game, while omitting certain features such as Costume Mario and limiting course sharing to local wireless instead of over Nintendo Network.



  • In Japan, Super Mario Maker is the most recent game represented in Super Smash Bros. 4, released about three weeks before the stage released, but in Europe and North America it is beaten by Fire Emblem Fates.
  • Certain structures in this stage such as slopes, tilted platforms, and pools of lava cannot be replicated in the Super Mario Maker game.
  • One of the possible random layouts for this stage is a single platform akin its Omega form, but thinner. [2]
  • Super Mario Maker is the first Super Smash Bros. stage with a design based on Super Mario Bros. 3.
  • Super Mario Maker is the only stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS based on a game which debuted on Wii U.
  • Super Mario Maker is one of three stages to share music with other stages, the others being Pirate Ship and Big Battlefield. Castle Siege and Coliseum also share two tracks if Corrin is downloaded.
  • At 27 tracks, Super Mario Maker has by far the largest music selection of any Super Smash Bros. stage. In Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, it is one of two stages to have more than two music tracks, having five possible tracks. Dream Land has six possible musical selections.
  • Super Mario Maker and Duck Hunt are the only stages where Star KOs and Screen KOs only occur in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.
  • Super Mario Maker is the only paid downloadable stage that is neither a past stage nor bundled with a fighter.
